Practice makes (nearly) perfect. Right?

To that end, here's a review of what people do—and don’t do—in the Longevity Hot Spots. We suggest you print it and keep it somewhere you can see it, such as on the refrigerator or at your desk.

HSH Tip:

Do this with your diet…

  • eat plenty of different kinds of vegetables
  • eat whole grains and avoid refined grains
  • eat the right kinds and amounts of proteins
  • drink mainly water, green tea, and herb tea
  • drink small amounts of red wine with a meal
  • eat plenty of omega 3 and omega 6 monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, eat saturated fats in moderation (except coconut), and avoid trans fats and hydrogenated fats altogether
  • eat fruit daily
  • eat superfoods
  • eat fermented foods
  • eat organic, unprocessed foods

Do this with your lifestyle…

  • get regular physical activity
  • keep busy and purposeful
  • build connections through strong social networks and loving relationships
  • remain active until old age and very old age
  • know how and when to relax and recharge
  • have spiritual beliefs and a deeper sense of the meaning of life
 

In the Longevity Hot Spots, they don't…

  • smoke cigarettes
  • drink spirits or drink excessively
  • eat sugar
  • drink much coffee or black tea
  • drink sugary or caffeinated canned drinks
  • eat very much meat
  • eat excessive amounts of dairy products
  • eat processed foods
  • eat white flour products, such as biscuits and cakes
  • eat trans fats or hydrogenated fats
